Course was held in Cleveland, OH as part of a larger conference "Management of Humanitarian Emergencies." Learners included physicians from Cuba, Puerto Rico, and South Africa. The Cuban physicians did not believe HBB had ever been taught in their country. When we discussed the importance of documenting a birth record, they also stated that it is not required to document births of infants weighing less than 1500 grams, so that the birth rate and infant mortality rates recorded in-country are not accurate.

Important to spend time with new facilitators teaching them how to give an OSCE.
Some students arrive late and aren't up to speed for OSCE's.  I had them go study and practice for at least another hour before re-taking the test.  If they couldn't, they were excused from class.

Suggestions from the team:
1. Because of the newness of the material and unique procedures in the Ivory Coast teaching ECEB/ECSB to the trainers in one day felt too rushed.  The second course went better.  
2. It was hard to use the ECEB/ECSB flip chart.  There is so much material to cover in each lesson.
3. All local materials used in ECEB  need to be collected and put together in kits ahead of time.  Gathering the information and material was very challenging because no two centers do things the same way.  Though the Ministry makes specific recommendations, local health centers or hospitals may not have all the supplies.  Some hospital pharmacies require families to look elsewhere to obtain medication themselves.
4. The MamaBreasts were very distrasting.  Are they more distracting than helpful?  Once they were introduced participants played with them for an hour.

Items to note:
1. Attendance: With a little variation, teachers, participants and  institutions were identified months before the course.  They attended because the Director of the Department of Health told them to.  They became anxiously engaged once they realized that altruism is the motive for LDS Charities. 
2. Pauline Ahandonouto, our project manager or “monitor,” visited each institution before the course.  Together the leaders decided on key indicators that she would follow monthly, along with the health departments.
3. Small conferences with the Ivoirian trainers during the second course helped them to focus and built their self-esteem
4. Videos were very helpful for ECEB, but some need to be shorter.   Because of the need for videos, ECEB did not lent itself as well to individuals teaching whole course at table like HBB does.
5. Sister Dady prepared wrap-arounds for 50 kits.
6. Emphasis on ventilating in 60 seconds using a watch
7. Have entire group hold breath for 60 seconds to understand how much babies need oxygen.
8. Ange sang a gorgeous lullaby as we put the Neonatalies to bed

Baseline data were collected on 20 institutions.  Representatives from 31 institutions came to the course at the invitation of their departmental directors of health.  No representatives from the largest hospital CENTRE HOSPITALIER REGIONAL DE KORHOGO attended the first day.  Though it was intended to include this hospital when the project was developed, for some reason they were not invited, perhaps because of a change in the leadership of the Korhogo Department of Health.  A team went to that hospital to recruit participants.  The next day 2 midwives, leaders in the hospital, attended.  They were were given one-on-one instruction until they were functioning at the level of the rest of the group.
The Project Monitot  has been asked to do follow-up on the 20 facilities with the highest numbers of deliveries; the others if she has time
